View Full Version : [ubuntu] Intrepid repeated "Restart Required"

February 2nd, 2009, 03:09 AM

Ubuntu 8.10 64-bit generic kernel.

I accepted updates today, which had a whole lot of system header and compiler updates. After which I get repeated requests to restart my system. I have done this restart about ten times. I imagine once is usually enough.

I am a beginner at using Ubuntu, and would like some help at diagnosing what is happening. I have spend two hours searching for similar, and found mainly complaints about grammar in the request dialogue.

I tried sudo for both of:

# apt-get -f install
# dpkg --configure -a

There some inconsistencies in package lists for the apt-get, I followed the instructions, and these were cleared.

The dpkg command was silent.

The requested restarts continue unabated.

Restart requests seem to have stopped. I also uninstalled GNUStep dev. No Idea if that had an effect.

I'd still appreciate a tip on how to work out what is asking for the restart...

This problem has started again, it is exceptionally hard to search for any advice on google - generates too many unrelated results. Can someone please help with correct diagnosis procedure. How do I find out what is triggereing the request.

I notice many other requests on the web for answers on same problem go unreplied.
